Turning Left + Karski Daly Blues

Turning Left | 7.30pm

Turning Left is a 3-piece blues/rock outfit from Perth WA, moulded from a diversity of backgrounds. Gordon German (guitar/vocals) has played in blues-based original and cover bands since the 1970’s, including Coldfront, Mirror Imij and the Woodstock Revival (Jimi Hendrix Experience). He is, naturally, left handed, and doesn’t like cauliflower. Steve Prescott (bass/vocals) has been a founding member in several of Perth’s big cover bands, such as Slim Jim and the Fatts, Fireball, and Croz and the Allstars. He is, naturally, also left handed and doesn’t like corriander. Dave Knox (drums) considers himself a galactic traveller and follower of Blue moons. He has made various loud noises with heavy rock outfits such as Subtruck, Mystic Twist and Volcanics. He is, rather unnaturally, right-handed.

Karski Daly Blues | 8.45pm

The ‘Karski Daly Blues’ is an outfit that grew out of ‘the Nervous Investors‘ and ‘the Heavy Hitters’, both righteous acts on the Perth Blues scene for some years. With the passing of Roy Daniel, bassist for both bands, the time came for his former band mates to join forces and close ranks.
The result is a harmonica and guitar driven quartet with a driving dance edge and dual vocals, featuring;
Paul Daly – (vocals and blues harp) with his signature vocal and harp style, engaging stage presence and honest delivery, Paul has established a loyal fan base on the WA blues scene with The Shinkickers.
Mike Hagerty Jnr – (drums) Award winning groove-king and always in demand, his unique feel and swing drives the pulse like no other, he’ll Boogie till you barf !
Pat Savina – (bass) filling Roy Daniel’s sonic footprint is no easy task, but Pat has managed to step in with his own inimitable style, whilst maintaining the integrity of the groove that needed preserving. His soloing is both inventive and unique.
Lez Karski – (vocals and guitar) Lez’s history on the Australian Blues scene is well documented, appearing with the Foreday Riders, the Hippos, Bondi Cigars, Donkeys and the Nervous Investors.
Too old to know better and too silly to stop, he’s still having fun playing the Blues with his friends. Together ‘Karski Daly Blues‘ intend to keep up a tradition of dance driven Blues designed to engage the heart, soul and feet of anyone within earshot.
